The December meeting will be the annual Christmas bash.
The November meeting will be at the Harris Center in Hancock. We are one of the sponsors of the "Rare Fish" presentation that will be given. Here is more information on the evening's presentation.
Nov. 18 (Thursday) – New Hampshire’s Rare Fish. While there are more than 50 native and naturalized fish species in New Hampshire’s freshwaters, nearly half of them have been classified as being of “greatest conservation concern” in the state’s Wildlife Action Plan. Among them are species like American brook lamprey, the bridle shiner (rarely exceeding 2 inches) and the round whitefish. All of these are imperiled by aquatic ecosystems and landscapes that have been altered in one or many ways. Other fish are obscure, and scientists need to know more about them. And still other species – like Eastern brook trout and rainbow smelt – are important for healthy and intact aquatic ecosystems. Ben Nugent, a fisheries biologist with the N.H. Fish and Game Department, will describe how the department and its partners are working to restore some of the rare species, and make sure that common species remain common. Ben will be also be talking about the Eastern Brook Trout Joint Venture as part of his talk.Anglers and anyone concerned with healthy ecosystems will learn from Ben’s talk. Harris Center’s Babbitt Room, 7 p.m.
We can meet as a group about 6:30, with the presentation starting at 7:00. See you there!
The first meeting of the new season will be on October 21 at the Dublin Public Library. The meeting will feature the final drawing of the 20/20 Raffle for the $500 and $1000 prizes! Be there to claim your prize!
